Project ECHO: Care of Older Adults & KCHC Meeting

During COVID-19 precautions, all Project ECHO meetings will be held virtually via Zoom.

Our Project ECHO Care of Older Adults seeks to improve the health and wellbeing of older adults. Among the many challenges Kentuckians face in rural and underserved communities is healthcare access. This is especially true for older adults. In these communities, it can be difficult for individuals to find providers close to them who are educated in the complexities of caring for older adults. Download our flyer here.

Project ECHO: Care of Older Adults is a growing community of health care providers and community stakeholders dedicated to best practices in the care of older adults. Sessions on the 1st Friday are 12:00-1:00, those on the 3rd Friday start at 12:00 and are followed by a meeting of the Kentucky Coalition for Healthy Communities (all times EST). All sessions will include an educational didactic (topics found in the schedule below),  case presentation, and discussion to address the following needs:

  1.  Providing patient-/family-centered care;
  2.  Improving chronic health conditions;
  3.  Providing effective behavioral health interventions;
  4.  Improving treatment and care of those with Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementias; and
  5.  Increasing interprofessional collaborative care. 

Upcoming Session - September 18th

Our next Project ECHO and Kentucky Coalition for Health Communities is September 18, 12:00-2:00 ET. This Quarterly meeting of the KCHC will be hosted by the Big Sandy Area Development District. We hope you will bring your lunch and join us for two excellent presentations on emergency preparedness.

Dr. Lori Caloia will present during Project ECHO on Emergency Preparedness During a Pandemic and Holly Bagley will join us for the KCHC meeting to present the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's program,Your Money, Your Goals. These presentations will answer common questions, provide tips, and create tools to help the people you serve navigate these challenging times.
